When scraping normally the IMDB ID key is stored in the database. What happens let's say when you are using themoviedb scraper and there isn't an imdb key available. Does the tmdb ID get stored anywhere or is it just neglected?

I'm taking a shot in the dark. But I think because when you add to theMovieDB it asks for the IMDB ID, it still stores that number.

You are not oligated to store the imdb id when making a new movie.
So when there is no imdb will it store the tmdb id instead

The answer might be too late, but I believe there is no "instead"

The tmdb scraper stores both the tmdb and the imdb ids in separate columns.

If the imdb id is not available, my guess is that only the tmdb id would be stored and imdb field would be blank
